Julie is thankful to her college teacher who gave her the nudge to apply for the job. Her job as the Facilities Clerk has given her independence and she’s enjoyed building relationships with her colleagues.
“My favorite part about SVB is being able to work in a real office. I can do my job every day even though I have a disability. I feel honored to go into the office, take transportation, and work on my own. I really connect with my coworkers and have made new friends. I love working at SVB!”
SVB is not only committed to hiring individuals with disabilities but also to providing opportunities for career growth. Since her start 10 years ago, Julie has added more and more responsibilities to her job description every year. Over the last three years, Julie has worked toward her goal of working at the front desk. SVB has supported this goal by carving out time in her daily schedule to shadow the front desk and support the team.
The pandemic has put a hold on being in the office and Julie, like many, is adjusting to this new normal.
“Since working from home, I have been doing a lot of at-home learning, checking LinkedIn, sending emails, and checking in with my supervisor. Even though COVID-19 is still going on, I am happy to continue working at Silicon Valley Bank.”
Congratulations on your 10-year work anniversary, Julie, and thank you to Silicon Valley Bank for your longstanding partnership!
